Before joining the Evoke family in 2018, Tess spent time working with social and environmental justice organizations around the world, as well as working in holistic and naturopathic medicine. Tess has worked as a Senior Field Instructor and Clinical Assistant in the past for Evoke at Entrada. Since moving up to Salt Lake City to pursue her Master’s of Social Work at the University of Utah, she has returned to the family as a Clinical Assistant and Hospitality Coordinator for Evoke Intensives.

She excels in challenging participants to show up authentically, advocate for their needs, take accountability, and learn the value of holding personal boundaries. Much of her success with participants stems from her ability to balance compassion and challenge.
Tess approaches life with curiosity, openness, and a genuine love for diving into all things new and uncomfortable.
Tess appreciates any opportunity to get outside and loves camping, hiking, kayaking, swimming, and fishing. When not at school, working, or in the woods, chances are you can find her hosting a dinner party for friends, or enjoying a cup of coffee while watching the bustle of her neighborhood from her back porch.
